The winds will shift out of the Northeast by the middle of the week. A building ridge of high pressure in combination with offshore winds and low humidity will bring fire weather concerns to parts of Southern California.
By Wednesday, there will be sustained winds of between 15 and 25 miles per hour, with isolated gusts through the favored passes and canyons up to 45 mph.
The relative humidity will drop into the low teens and upper single digits with temperatures rising well above average.
A Fire Weather Watch has already been issued, so expect wind advisories as well.
